Draught. Dark brown with white head. Malt aroma. Hop edge on flavour and finish. All over the tongue.

First thought is “oh, a ‘session’ Barleywine”. Interesting blend of hop bitterness, malt and alcohol burn. More satisfying as it warms, as it drinks far too ‘thin’ when cold.

Bomber. Pours a mahogany color, lots of reddish hues with a large beige head. A big sweet malty nose, caramel and cherry. A really rich ASA, caramel, the biggest flavor is probably toffee, dusty malts, cherry and light smoked malt. Very nice.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma is of caramel and spices. Flavor is a bit ordinary and medicinal, some cherry deep down which makes it somewhat more interesting. Finishes with medium bitterness. Overall it’s fine, just a hair above average.

Lots of malt and hops on both aroma and taste. Really nice pour with beautiful head. Much like an imperial black IPA, leaning slightly more malty. Great bittering on the finish. Tasted at 48°F.

Bottle, 2014 vintage, received for Xmas 2015. Super excited at first, then I noticed the date… pours a flat, medium depth brown and topped with a thin beige head. Little bits of lacing. The nose is citrus, noticeably faded, hops. A little bit of wet dog. The flavor has held up remarkably well; citrus, caramel, and floral hops. Some bitters up front before getting sweet, then a lingering floral bitter finish. Actually drinks pretty good. Will try and get a fresh bottle and revisit.

fiulijn (21507) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Dark brown color with generous compact head. Too similar to a Black IPA not to be mentioned; good resiny hops blend with good malt, and moderate roasty character; full bodied, fruity, fresh.
Very good beer.
